Greenfield Robotics, the agricultural robotics startup, and The 6ixth Event, an early-stage fund, are pleased to announce an investment.
The 6ixth Event is an early-stage fund, founded by Melanie Rosenthal, Burak Sezen and Josh Rosenthal.
The founders are a team of serially successful entrepreneurs with repeated exits.
They founded The 6ixth Event to invest in early-stage companies delivering impact from deep socio-demographic drivers meeting emerging technology; themes include Reinventing Career, Millennial Potpourri, AI Tech, IoT Tech, Distributed / Decentralized Tech.
“Farming, like all industries, is constantly changing,” says Melanie Rosenthal, Partner at The 6ixth Event. “There was a time when it made sense to use chemicals because they were beneficial in many ways. But now we know they also come with a lot of downside and unintended consequences to both human and soil health. Now that we understand this, it's time to change again.
Regenerative farming holds promise as a way to achieve maximum crop yield, while building up long-term soil health and ultimately human health in the form of nutrient-dense, chemical-free food.
“The challenge is to make regenerative farming easy to adopt and scale and that's exactly what Greenfield is doing,” says Josh Rosenthal, Partner at The 6ixth Event.
“6ixth Event shares a common passion with us,” says Clint Brauer, Co-Founder/CEO, Greenfield Robotics. “We agree on the importance of solving human health, farm economic issues and environmental issues through regenerative agriculture and carbon farming.”
"Josh, Melanie and Burak have successful entrepreneurial experience from another complex sector of the economy - healthcare," continues Brauer. "They are full of ideas, strategic and tactical, and any time we speak with them, it results in great advice and a smile. We really enjoy the working relationship.”
Greenfield Robotics is a startup that is developing robots to enable farmers to implement carbon farming (or regenerative farming) on a large scale, economically and without agrichemicals.
